There is a growing awareness in the community, industry, and within Council on the benefits of trees in the urban environment (encouraging walking, improving amenity, increasing property values, promoting local biodiversity etc.).
The City’s draft Local Planning Policy 4.10: Streetscapes will see a requirement for street trees on every lot in all new green field developments. In response to this, an updated Tree Species List has been developed to support the objectives of the draft Streetscape Policy (LPP 4.10), and the draft Street and Reserve Tree Policy. The updated list will guide the species selection of trees for use in City public open space and road reserves, as well as commercial developments.
The Tree Species List is now available for public comment. A copy of the List, together with an Frequently Asked Questions sheet has been included in the ‘Document Library’ below.
Submissions on the Tree Species List can be mailed to:
